Something Big is going on

Big Saturday was officially launched on 02 October 2010 and an exciting adventure has begun.
Over 30 children came to the first Big Saturday and there was a great feeling of peace, fun, happiness and excitement.
In the first part of the programme
  * faces were painted
  * models made out of junk
  * biscuits made
  * knitted dragonflies had their googly eyes stuck on
  * bouncing on the inflatable castle
  * drinking colourful mocktails and

  * eating yummy cakes at the tuck shop.The children then moved upstairs for a fast moving programme, with Bubba the gorilla, singing camels and great worship songs. The children then listened about a fantastic God who loves them so much that he sent his son Jesus, to die on a cross for all the wrong things they have ever done.
All in all the day was a great success and many kids and their parents went away with a smile on their face.

The next Big Saturday will be on 06 November and the theme will be 'Listening to God' based on the bible story of Noah.
